Scott Genius LT 40 Mountain Bike

With Scott naming its system, LT, for Long Travel, you can assume that the Scott Genius LT 40 mountain bike allows you to take in steep descents and gruelling climbs without being hampered by either. There are several features which facilitate this level of functionality and I will quickly cover the basics below.

Providing the rider with the ability to gain traction no matter what their trajectory is essential, as is cushioning their ride without compromising on grip. With traction control and custom air springs on the front and rear you can be assured of these abilities. The Scott Genius LT 40 has an advanced alloy frame that is again suitably customised to provide superior performance and allow for high speed operation due to its lightness.
